Saint Peter's Healthcare System was formed in 2007 and reflects the expansive scope of health and wellness services we offer to our community.

Our services are offered to all. We are a Catholic institution with a capital \"C\" and a small \"c.\" We draw inspiration from our religious heritage. Our care for others is universal, extending to those of other faiths and in some cases, of no faith whatsoever. Without question, the fact that ours is a faith-based healthcare delivery system is of primary significance. At Saint Peter's Healthcare System, you will find leading-edge technology and an experienced staff. You will also find the trust and compassion that we have always been known for.

This is our legacy-our very sacred ministry.
